A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Friday revoked bail and refused to allow Dr. Milos Klvana, a Valencia obstetrician convicted this week of second-degree murder, to represent himself at his upcoming sentencing. Klvana had sought to act as his own attorney during his sentencing, scheduled for Jan. 12. But Judge Judith C. Chirlin refused the request. She also revoked Klvana's $750,000 bail. Klvana has been in Los Angeles County Jail since February, 1988.

In an egregious case of medical misconduct that has implications for anyone who goes to a doctor, Valencia obstetrician Milos Klvana has been convicted of second-degree murder in the deaths of eight babies and a fetus. The deaths share chilling elements: parents going to Klvana's clinic, trusting him and burying a child days after birth. Evidence showed he repeatedly misused a labor-inducing drug and botched complications that required hospital care.

A judge told jurors in the trial of Dr. Milos Klvana, who is accused of murdering infants through poor medical care, to begin their deliberations anew Monday after dismissing a juror who brought a dictionary into the jury room. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Judith C. Chirlin instructed the jury to start over after nine days of deliberations because the juror who brought the standard English dictionary to court last Thursday had to be replaced with an alternate.

A doctor made a citizen's arrest of two men after a dispute in her offices, and the men, including another doctor, reciprocated by arresting her, authorities said Friday. The three--including Dr. Milos Klvana, who was ordered in October to stand trial on six counts of second-degree murder involving the deaths of newborn babies whose births he had supervised--had argued over a business deal, said Sgt. Ed Dvorak of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office Monday asked that two murder charges be added to the seven against Milos Klvana, a Valencia obstetrician charged in the deaths of newborn infants in his care. After his arrest in October, 1986, Klvana, 47, was charged with nine counts of second-degree murder. But in October, 1987, Municipal Court Judge James F. Nelson ordered that two of the charges be dropped.
